On the marketing front, we have written a lot of great articles this year, and have been in a number of other features, providing commentary to the relevant stories. They can all be read on the Lab49 website here with the articles carved out in a separate page here. A few highlights:

Building a bank from scratch hypothesizes what it would take to rebuild bank systems from scratch to support real-time data aggregation and analysis, to provide a platform to capitalize on next-generation technologies, and to accommodate constant change. The article also outlines what principles, technologies and processes should be put in place to facilitate the optimal solution.
